|Bringing Back Holleywood||
ton of bricks
We decide on bricks made the old-fashioned way: by hand. This ensures historical-looking color variation in the new chimneys. The bricks were shipped from North Carolina before Irene hit there, fortunately. They come marked with what seems like a superfluous caveat: "Once these bricks are laid in the wall, they become the property of the purchaser."
who we are
We are a couple of Upper West Siders from NYC who never set out to buy an old mansion in Connecticut. But the moment we walked through its massive front door, we were smitten. The info on this site is earnestly cobbled from a variety of sources, including the web. Please let us know if we've gotten something wrong, or if there's a story about Holleywood you'd like to share.
